Street food trailblazers, KERB, launch their first permanent bricks and mortar right in the heart of Camden market. KERB Counter is a hidden gem located next to the 34 trader KERB Camden Market where visitors can enjoy London’s greatest street food line-up at the same time as great beers, good wine and cocktails on tap.
KERB Counter will be open mornings through to evenings, seven days a week, serving a dynamic selection of beer on tap including Gipsy Hill Beatnik, Redhook Longhammer IPA and Beavertown Neck Oil, Assembly filter coffee and signature KERB cocktails. The drinks menu will be paired with dishes from KERB Camden Market with monthly trader takeovers hosted in the evenings. KERB will be bringing trader produce from kerb to counter inside, including KERB Alumni Good & Proper Tea, KERBanist Square Root’s sodas and My Pie snacks.
As well as an oasis to enjoy amazing street food in, KERB say: “KERB Counter is a chance for us to grow the opportunities we bring to our traders and provide a whole new way of enjoying street food for our customers - through beer pairings, supper clubs and smaller, more intimate private events."
Fundi will launch the first KERB trader takeover of KERB Counter, staying open late in KERB Camden Market (Wednesday to Saturdays evenings from 29 November) to cook up a six pizza special menu at KERB Counter, paired with a KERB cocktail menu, featuring Snowgronis, Sicilian Margarita’s, Venetian Punch and Sour Italian’s.
On launching KERB Counter, Alison O’ Reilly, KERB Head of Marketing says, “Many of our traders have aspirations to open their own bricks and mortar spots and we are always looking for new ways of helping them do this, as well as looking to bring something different to Londoners. KERB Counter provides us with the ability to do both and Camden is ripe for it.”
Consciously considering the environmental impact and developing their sustainable practices, KERB's Head of Bars, Hannah Walton says: “We will also be using KERB Counter as a chance to look into KERB’s environmental impact and develop our own sustainability practices. For example, we reward those that bring their own re-usable hot drink vessels in KERB Counter, we have a no straw policy; provide kegged wine and work with Bibendum using sustainable vineyards and Chapel Down for local wines.”
During KERB Camden Market opening times (11am-6pm full details here), visitors will be able to bring food bought from any of the 34 trader stalls into KERB Counter as well as KERB Counter snacks (available all day + evening) featuring a mix of KERB trader produce including Good & Proper Tea, Square Root hand squeezed sodas and My Pie’s legendary pies.
Late Night Thursdays: all 34 traders will be open until 9pm on 7th, 14th and 21st December, doing Christmas Special dishes. Christmas Special dishes include: Oli Baba’s Nutella Hobnob halloumi fries; Spice Box’s vegan crimbo curry; Only Jerkin’s deep fried jerk turkey nuggets; and The Cheese Wheel’s DOUBLE cheese-dunked gran padano, truffle brie fettucine alfreso - and you will be able to take all of these dishes inside KERB Counter to enjoy with your Christmas cocktails.
The whole of Camden Market will also be open for late night Christmas shopping with Christmas choirs and carollers singings. Find more information here.
